Agree with Sue- l think 'Just Joey' is my favorite too. l am having a dilema about what to do with my roses out front just now- some have been in for many years and are just passed it. We're also moving things around for the new driveway- arghh- what to do?
Your roses are all stunning- lovely how they are so full and lush.
Bests :)

G'Day G'Day Jen! Do you want a job? I'd be sure to get another pay rise if I got the bosses roses growing like yours, they are beautiful. I especially like the standards. I think the pink one in the first piccy is awesome, I also like the Iceberg too. Well done.

Hi Jen, beautiful roses, I can't live without a rose or two, I cannot say which I liked best as they are all blooming to perfection. I have a funny rose story, I have tried to buy a particular bush rose twice, twice it has been wrongly labelled. Can you believe it? The rose was one that Lyle had bought me years ago and I always had it up until my last move. I don't think I am meant to have it again do you?
Cheers Margaret

Hi Jeanette,

You have the lovely roses, I like the impression the best.

I envy your nice weather, we have a storm come though here over the weekend, nothing was damaged and I some nice shots of a double rainbow and posted it on my blog.

But this morning we had our first hard frost, it got down to 31 F. I think that's 0 C. but you'd have to tell me I'm not good with the metric system.
